    1xRTT

    Last night I performed a soft-reset of my phone as the keyboard stopped responding to me. Once the phone came back up, I noticed a new icon that I hadn't ever seen before... a "1X" showed up in the info bar next to the start button. When I clicked it a ballon that said: "1xRTT" came up.

    Can anyone tell me why this is suddenly coming up and what does it mean?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Here is my guess, and it is a wild one.

    I believe that the VZ users see this icon alot to indicate wether they are in 1xrtt coverage or EVDO.

    Jacksonville is a likely place where sprint is going to roll out EVDO so maybe the signal is there but the phone does not have the rights or software to access it-yet.

    I told you it was wild!

    I am having the same problem. To get rid of it I have to turn on flight mode, then back to phone mode. Wierd, didn't have it before.

    Yes I have VzW, and 1x is our mode when we are not in an EVDO area, or active in a phone call. Wonder if your phone is picking up VzW testing of EVDO or something like that...

    Will keep you posted.

    Update: I turned flight mode on and then back off... ever since then the icon went away and hasn't come back.... DOH!

    I'll see what happens when I get home.

    Marc,
    I for one am not happy with this new glitch. Believe me, it's just a pain after a soft reset to have to turn the phone off and on. I knew if wasn't evdo, but a new something else to do!

    I guess I'm a little confused. Why would you consider '1x' to be a glitch?

    All 1x means is you're in range of a 1xRTT data-capable tower. It has no affect on your voice calling whatsoever.

    I know that, but the phone used to not display a stupid icon saying that, it just worked without (as a matter every sprint pda I've had never displayed this thing) So, I don't need to look at it.

    Not me. I came from the G1000 PDA and never saw that. The odd thing is I've never seen it on the PPC-6600 until last night. Odd, but it doesn't bother me. I don't consider it a glitch, really.

    Y'all're weird.

    My Verizon-based 1x capable phone has only failed to show me a 1x icon when it wasn't true Then, it just said 'A' (for analog roam) or 'D' (for straight CDMA).

    The story here seems to be IMO that Sprint is doing something on the network side of things. I bet the 1xrtt icon will be familiar to us sprint users once evdo is deployed- meaning we will show one or the other icons at all times.

    Actually, I believe that EVDO results in an 'EV' icon, rather than a '1x' icon.
